Thanks for the comment! You should definitely try a race. Most races have a beginner/novice class, and a lot of the women I race with are old enough to be my mom, but still kick my ass, so don't feel like you're too old to be awesome.

Favorite quote from anyone?!?! Well I will take youup on the anyone and I will quote my now 3 yr the time she was two and had just got up in the morning and while rubbing her eyes she says to me. "Mommy I fell down and the peanut butter got in my eyes!" I will remember that for as long as I live..I never laughed so hard...I am certain she had just the best dream (or scariest) that night!

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog and my etsy shop! These pens are just gorgeous -- and as a writer, pens are *very* important to me!

Here's my quote, from Rumi:

"Listen to me. For one moment, quit being sad. Hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you."

Count your blessings and pass one on!

Thanks for the comment! Too bad you aren't in KC to come have fun with us. I'm a knitter (& spinner) too.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, lots of pretty scenery here in Northern California. I liked looking at your site. Loved the quilt, the painting you did and the wonderful creative woodwork. Also, the cello playing photo was great. Nice you have a great music program at your school. And the knitting of the socks - amazing. What a creative family. Here is my favorite quote: "To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here is the full long quote containing that short quote that I truly love: “To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
